In a game that included a nearly two-hour interruption due to heavy thunderstorms, the University of Alabama in Huntsville women's soccer team rolled to a 4-0 victory over visiting Montevallo on Wednesday night at Charger Park. The Chargers improve to 1-1-1 with the victory, while the Falcons slip to 0-2-1.
The delay came 17 minutes into the game with the contest scoreless, and the game remained that way until just before halftime when Isabel Shanteau recorded her first of the season in the 42nd minute off an assist from Riley Ridgeway to send the Chargers into the locker room at the half up 1-0.
Keeping her team ahead, goalie Larae Breaux recorded her three saves of the contest in the first 20 minutes of the second half en route to posting her first clean sheet of the season, and that allowed UAH to ice the contest by scoring three more goals in 10 minutes late in the proceedings.
Alexcia Alexander – who tied for the team lead in scoring en route to earning GSC Freshman of the Year honors a year ago – scored twice in five minutes, logging her first in the 75th minute and another in the 80th for her first two scores of the season.
Assisting on the first Alexander goal was Sydney Pfankuch while Maddie Maurice picked up the helper on the second.
Pfankuch then proceeded to completely put the contest away with her first of the season when her shot clanked off the far post and ricocheted in to produce the 4-0 final.
The Chargers completely dominated play, outshooting Montevallo by a 15-5 margin including a 10-3 advantage in shots on goal, and the home side also earned a 6-2 edge in corners.
UAH will now look forward to welcoming Newberry to the Rocket City as the two teams will square off at Charger Park at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
